A hospital in the UK is reportedly asking biological males whether or not they are pregnant before performing x-rays and other tests.
According to the Daily Mail, the Walton Centre NHS Trust in Liverpool is one of a few facilities now asking all patients under the age of 60, including men, whether they might be carrying a child, regardless of the person’s “gender identity.” The question is now necessary because in 2017, the UK’s National Health Service replaced the word 'female' with the term 'individual” for medical procedures, making it harder for doctors to know whether a patient presenting as a man might actually be a biological woman.
And, because certain procedures, like x-rays, can be harmful to a developing baby, providers must now determine whether the “man” they’re treating could be pregnant.
"The Society of Radiographers last November advised medics it was 'important to check with all patients for any possibility of pregnancy,'" the Daily Mail explains.
All because “woke” social justice warriors have succeeded in pushing the ridiculous notion that a person’s feelings about their internal gender “identity” outweigh their biological, anatomical makeup – even when it comes to medical procedures that are, in large part, determined by their biology.
Despite it being completely contrary to science and potentially harmful to the medical needs of both men and women, trans-"inclusive" language in the medical field has become increasingly more popular in Western nations, even as it leads to more confusion for both medical providers and patients while all but erasing women from society and the English language.
In 2021, Australian National University’s updated handbook urged staff to use only “parent-inclusive language” when discussing labor, delivery and post-partum care, including replacing words like “breast-feeding” with “chest-feeding” and swapping “breast milk” for “chest milk” or “human milk” to avoid offending non-binary persons, claiming that “heterosexual and woman-focused lactation language…can misgender, isolate, and harm transmasculine parents and non-heteronormative families."
In the UK, Brighton and Sussex hospital renamed its maternity ward the "perinatal" ward to avoid offending "birthing people" who don't identify as "mothers," also swapping terms like "breastfeeding" for "chest feeding."
